Life in a Soap Opera

Life in a Soap Opera
"Politics" she said "is just suspicion - pure adultery - jealous lovers throwing shit at each other and then fucking each other over." Life in a soap opera was hard, everything scripted, words, emotions, actions, just all of it. We were the wild ones, fluffed our lines deliberately, kicked the props to prove they were fake, said what we felt rather than advancing the plot. "Love and politics isn't jealousy or conflict," she said "it's skinny dipping in serenity and cooperation". Just then the script editor zoomed in, made notes, re-wrote the whole episode - our freedom had made him suspicious!
